2017 Angels Walk for Autism

January 19, 2017

I have attended almost all the yearly Angels Walk for Autism event of Autism Society Philippines [ASP]. Last year 2016, my abridged edition featuring ASP’s previous Autism Walk events, “When Angels Walk for Autism” was screened at SM MOA Arena. It shows and tells the historical background of Autism Walk in the Philippines. Chair emeritus Dang Koe related the story. [See below].

Fellow advocates from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam to the Philippines attended last year’s event bringing to the core how autism advocacy has become a genuine global movement.

Traditionally, it is held every month of January in compliance with Proclamation 711. Because of MOA’s preparations perhaps for the Miss Universe Pageant to be held there in January 30, the ASP event has to be moved to February 5.

The Autism Society Philippines Angels Walk for Autism is an annual advocacy event that has been held since 2007. It has grown from 200 to 15,000 participants in 2016. Over the last 10 years, it has become the kick-off event of the Philippine National Autism Consciousness Week — an observance made possible by Philippine President Fidel Ramos’ Proclamation 711 of 1996.

The ASP’s Autism-OK Philippines campaign serves as a springboard for public awareness, private sector involvement and inclusion of the autism agenda in government social development initiatives.

Join the “Angels Walk for Autism 2017” and uplift and make time for people with autism.
